Everton Match Betting News

Everton suffered an excruciating 3-4 defeat against Stoke City on Monday and the result means that the Toffees have fallen behind in their hopes of earning a European place finish.

With the competition to earn a place among Europe’s elite so fierce in the Premier League, Everton cannot afford to lose anymore points immediately but with a clash against high flying Tottenham Hotspur up next this Sunday, one can be sure that Roberto Martinez’s men will be made to work hard in order to earn a positive result.

Tom Cleverley, Phil Jagielka, Bryan Oviedo, Steven Pienaar, Tony Hibbert and James McCarthy are all struggling with various injuries at the moment and look unlikely to be featuring on Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur Match Betting News

Tottenham Hotspur claimed an impressive 2-1 away victory against a tough Watford side on Monday and all of a sudden, Spurs have now turned from top four challengers to title contenders.

Given manager Mauricio Pochettino’s pragmatic way of thinking though, one can be sure that Spurs will not get carried away anytime soon and Tottenham are expected to approach the clash against Everton on Sunday with the same professionalism they have shown throughout 2015.

Moussa Dembele, Clinton N’Jie and Alex Pritchard are sidelined for the clash on Sunday and Pochettino is unlikely to be making too many changes to the side which claimed a victory against Watford last time out.

Everton vs Tottenham Hotspur Match Prediction

Everton have failed to beat Tottenham Hotspur in their last five encounters and given Spurs’ fine run of form at the moment, it has to be said that the away side head into the clash as slight favourites.

However, it is very difficult to see a clear winner from the clash and Everton will feel that they have a chance of claiming a result as well. Tottenham might just be able to nick a victory on the day but one can be sure that the fans are in for a very entertaining encounter.
